Description: An understory shrub that grows in medium shade to full sun, often forming colonies on the forest floor and woodland edges. The brown bark is deeply furrowed and ridged. When grown in full sun, the fall color is a very dark purple, nearly black, but this color softens in shade. The fruit is edible and typically ripens in July, but be careful of abundant thorns when handling.
